Media Law Resource Center Endorses Citizen Participation Act
The Media Law Resource Center (MLRC) has joined the coalition supporting HR 4364, the Citizen Participation Act. The Media Law Resource Center is a non-profit information clearinghouse originally organized by a number of media organizations to monitor developments and promote First Amendment rights in the libel, privacy and related legal fields. MLRC joins a coalition of more than 40 prominent individuals, and more than 80 organizations and corporations, including 17 state press associations, the Society of Professional Journalists and the Association of American Publishers. Members of the media are frequent targets of SLAPPs, as they often bring to light information that some would rather see kept quiet.
